    If by "warble" you mean swift pitch bending slightly above and below the note, it's called "vibrato". There are a couple pedals dedicated to Vibrato (Boss VB-2), but lots of Chorus pedals are able to do it, especially if they have "Rate" knobs. Even some delays can do it, like the EHX Deluxe Memory Man.

    EHX Polychorus.

    I don't have the settings anymore, but there was a setting on the flanger that was kinda like running your signal through a looped reel to reel with a crease in some rather crappy tape.

    wiggle your fingers...lol
    totally kidding, the boss VB-2 or diamond vibrato pedals are supposed to be really nice for a vibrato effect

    What would you recommend for warble (tape echo sim) in a delay FX loop. The EH Clone THeory looks like it tries to replicate the modulation of a DMM. Or perhaps the EH Poly Chorus instead? Or something else altogether?

    Line 6 pod x3 has warbler effect as well as a tape eater effect.

    I use it on of our songs

    Good suggestions...not that it would ever make a noticable difference in a delay loop, but any recommendations in the analogue realm?

    I like the EH Worm pedal. Many different warble sounds and tones. Even the "tremolo" setting is a warble sound.

    I've tried the Dano Cool Cat Chorus (the newer one) and a Behringer UV300 vibrato pedal in the loop of my Retroman KopyKat. The Dano I've been trying for a while, whereas the UV300 I just got in the mail today.

    Early results are that the UV300 can give a *perfect* warble to a delay effects loop. I think I'm going to like it a lot more than a chorus pedal on full mix vibrato simulation setting. The best thing: it's only $30.

    I HATE the Dano Cool Cat concentric knobs...otherwise....the pedals are nice. Loving my Tremolo...no concentrics on that one.

    I recently gave up on chorus...sticking with classic trem, delay and verb for those "special moments".
